Halekulani Welcomes Kistler Vineyards And Occidental March 15

Halekulani, Oahu’s acclaimed luxury hotel, is thrilled to host an exclusive wine event featuring Geoff Labitzke, Master of Wine, visiting from Kistler Vineyards and Occidental. Geoff Labitzke is one of only 369 Masters of Wine in the world. On Thursday, March 15, at 6:00 p.m. Halekulani invites guests to its award-winning Orchids restaurant for a remarkable evening exploring the wines of Kistler Vineyards and Occidental and gaining insight into the diverse world of wine from an expert in the field.

For 40 years, Kistler Vineyards has been an established winery and has perfected crafting world class wines from select California vineyard sites. Kistler has been committed to utilizing “old world” techniques while carefully refining the style of their wines. Founding co-owners Steve Kistler and the late Mark Bixler have always let their wines speak for themselves and the wines have been considered the American benchmark for the varietal.

There will be an impressive lineup of world-class wines for the evening, which will be paired with an original Mediterranean-inspired menu created by Orchids Chef de Cuisine, Christian Testa. Before being seated for the four-course dinner event, guests will clear their palates with a glass of a Kistler Chardonnay “Les Noisetiers” from 2016. Dinner starts with a Tartare Santa Margherita, a Kahuku Shrimp Tartare, and Peach-Mango “Mojo” paired with a Kistler Chardonnay “McCrea Vineyard” from 2015. The second course will be a Branzino alla Venezia Mantecato, a Hawaiian Sea Bass Venice style, with Polenta and Creamy Truffle delicately paired with a Kistler Pinot Noir “Kistler Vineyard” from 2014. Guests will then be served Vitello all Uccelletto, Strips of Veal, Kalamata Olives, Pine nuts, and Italia Zucchini with two Occidental Pinot Noirs “Cuvée Catherine” and “Cuvée Elizabeth” both from 2015. For the final course, guests will enjoy a Tagliere di Formaggi, an array of Imported Cheeses, Homemade Chutney, and Truffle, complemented by Honey Caramelized Walnuts.

The four-course dinner and wine pairing menu is priced at $143.00 with the addition of tax and gratuity. Seating is limited. For reservations and for more information, call Halekulani Dining Reservations at (808) 923-2311 Ext. 35.
